Message From the Owner
N8121K is an absolutely joy to fly. I originally purchased her from a gentleman in WA in May of 2017 as a student pilot and flew the new to me plane home to ND with a ferry pilot. She came with a great panel to begin with- GNA480, GMX200 and century 2000 AP. I got my private pilot certificate in that setup and flew all over Midwest making incredible memories. Over the years I did several upgrades to her including GTN 750 Xi, dual G5 and GFC 500 autopilot and did my instrument training in it. Flying instrument with that setup is like flying in rails. A typical flight would look like this - before take-off program you GPS and set the AP to IAS mode and preset altitude and hit the TOGA button. Then fly the flight director and engage the AP at 800 AGL, the plane would then follow the GPS, capture the altitude, and hold it until you are ready to decent, before decent if you are following any arrival procedure or just heading over to IAF, use VNAV to fly your decent profile, the AP will then fly the entire RNAV or ILS to the minimums. With envelop protection built into the system, there is no worry for AP stall, and it even monitors you when hand flying and will take over when low air speed goes is detected (with audible warning), or notices bank over 45 degrees. It's like having a CFI next to you always monitoring what's happening and ready to take over when need be. Last year I flew the plane from ND to GA where she is based now. It was a long flight, but I did it in a day with time to spare and relied on some it's automation capabilities to ensure pilot workload is less. Maintenance to the highest standards including performing most SB's and getting the automation built into the panel was my top priority and no corners were cut to ensure there are no surprises while flying. Unfortunately, it's time to let her go to her new home.
